I made these beaded pens this morning to go with the crazy for chocolate nugget boxes for the teachers and secretary's. I still have to make one more but I only had one pack of pens. I will have to get more pens cause I still need them for the gift sets. I love making these pens. They are so simple. I hope to get a couple more gift sets done this weekend and get started on my Christmas cards. AGH!!! I get my tacky tape sheets from Oriental Trading Company. Three sheets for $4.95. I get my micro beads from Michael's. They come in a two pack for $1.99 and that will make 20 pens. For the address labels, I just buy the Avery ones for the computer and cut them down. RSVP pens I get a Walmart. I can't remember how much they are but they come in a 5 pack and are way cheaper than an office supply store. After I put the label and tape on the pen, I heat it with the heat gun before rolling in the beads. It makes the tape more sticky and the beads hold on better. Here are the directions for the RSVP pens if you would like to try them.
Ink: Cool Caribbean, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose
Accessories: RSVP Pen, Micro Beads, Tacky Tape, Address Label, Heat Gun, Rectangle Container
